It looks like the iPhone SE 2 launch date is going to be sometime in May. The news came from case makers who spoke with Japanese website, Mac Otakara.
According to the case makers, the next iPhone SE will look similar to the current model, which is based on the iPhone 5 style. As such, the handset will continue to feature a 4-inch display.
One thing that is changing: The new phone is probably going to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack. Apple eliminated the legacy port on all iPhones beginning with the iPhone 7 in 2016.
The iPhone SE 2 should also feature an A10 Fusion chip, as previously reported.
Earlier this week, the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) published a regulatory listing that seemed to confirm Apple’s new iPhone SE could be arriving in a few weeks. This regulatory agency also confirmed imminent arrivals of the recently unveiled sixth-generation iPad, iPhone 7, and more.
Apple hasn’t fully refreshed the iPhone SE since it launched in March 2016, but it did double its available storage capacities to 64GB and 128GB in March 2017. It also dropped the device’s starting price to $349 last September.
With an iPhone SE 2 launch date in May, not June, Apple seems committed to making the June 4 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) keyboard all about “iOS 12” and next-generation iPad Pro models and not new iPhones. Not so surprising, given that Apple hasn’t announced a new phone in June since the iPhone 4 in 2010.
